Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

What Rhymes With Knee?

Ouch doesn't rhyme with knee but that's all I can think about right now.  It seems that a week ago I did something to my knee and OUCH.

I sit down at my desk to work on something. OUCH!

I stand up to walk across the room. OUCH!

I exist. OUCH!

And when I am in pain, I guess I have no creative juice. Although that might just be the aftermath of getting things submitted to Cloth Paper Scissors for that new magazine they've got...

Still... I promise to return. In the meantime, OUCH!

I've had the pain vs creativity problem before. Tylenol and a good doctor fixed that. Hope you get better soon.

I've only had the creativity problem. But that's also a pain. Hope you feel better.
